Went there for a business dinner with a large international group (>25) and everybody was extremely pleased. Excellent atmosphere, attentive service and a perfect place to taste something out of the ordinary. The dishes are very good and classy, a perfect way to create a great first impression. I highly recommend it.

We visited this restaurant on 2 occasions. First to check it out, and then when we ate with friends on a weekend away. The table for 6 was well positioned and not cramped. Both times the service was good without being intrusive. The menu, in English or French, offered a wide choice of regional dishes, as well as Classic French... More

I was a little worried with some of the reviews but this was perfect! Food great, service attentive. Expensive but what do you expect if staying at a true 5*?! Would definitely return.

We had a really good meal here, both having the waterzooi de poisson. The restaurant is down a quiet street but very close to the centre of Lille, in a beautiful old building. The service was good and all in all a good choice for a meal out in Lille.

Came here on last of three nights in Lille and had by far the best meal of our stay. I ordered Kir and had the choice of it being made with Cassis, Peche, Mure or Framboise. Framboise was delicious. Excellent smoked herring tartare starter and very tasty carbonnade de boeuf main course. My dessert was lemon sorbet drenched in gin... More

We stumbled across this place. Food is lacking in any passion or quality about it. It feels as though the menu was created with good intentions and after 100s of covers has (like Chinese whispers) migrated into something quite different - bland and ordinary (not terrible though). Atmosphere is ok (nice building inside). Slow service but friendly waiters. Overall feels... More

The first time we got there by pure causality, just walking about and the façade caught our eyes then... Nice welcoming smile, good cocktails, an interesting menu and the dishes were delicious, including the dessert. The place is romantic, dimmed lights, good and pleasant French style service and the whole story for a reasonable price. To say it simply, we... More

We called in on the off-chance as we were tired and it was the end of a long days travelling.Decor was welcoming and there were a few people eating. Service was kind of ok - staff too casually dressed for our taste. On the plus side nibbles and bread were provided with no cover charge. Food arrived very fast -... More

Unfortunately we experienced poor service from this restaurant. It was not a busy night and there were several mishaps. Firstly, they were impolite which is unusual for Lille. We were not offered any water despite a number of staff members lounging in the bar yet they were eager to take our wine order whilst still drinking our champagne. Wrong entrees... More
